Peterka leads at Hillendale

August 10, 1994|By From Staff Reports

Former champion Cindy Peterka, a runner-up last year, posted 39-3877 and took a two-stroke lead after the first round of the annual Women's Golf Association stroke-play championship at Hillendale Country Club yesterday.

Susan Schuh, with 35-4479, was the only other golfer to break 80 in the 51-player field. The Hunt Valley GC member played the back first and soared six over par in a four-hole span, then charged back with three birdies and a bogey on the front nine.

Peterka, from Sparrows Point CC, was more consistent, keeping the ball in play and handling difficult greens well.

Knowing the club (and course) woes of the past year, many players were complimentary of the conditions, expressing surprise the course had come back so strongly.
